UltraGene-HIV Assay

Description

The UltraGene-HIV Assay is intended to be used for HIV-1 viral load detection above 20 copies/mL through qPCR. When results are positive, it can also be used for genotyping and provides antiretroviral susceptibility information for reverse transcriptase inhibitors (NRTI, NNRTI). It includes target-specific qPCR reagents compatible with either Sanger or Next Generation Sequencing platforms.

Methodology

DNA Sequencing • Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR)
